Dogs are one of the most popular pets in Ohio and throughout the United States. While most dog owners are highly responsible and do everything in their power to ensure that their pets don’t harm anyone, there are also some careless dog owners who fail to properly restrain or train their pets, which could result in someone’s serious injury or even death.
Millions of people in the United States are victims in dog bite accidents on an annual basis and a good portion of these attacks are serious enough to require medical attention. Dog bite victims may experience significant financial losses after an attack, including medical expenses, pain management costs, and possibly bills for ongoing treatment or reconstructive surgery.
If you have been bitten or attacked by an animal, it’s important to know your legal rights. Jones Law Group can review your case at no charge. We can help you obtain a full and fair settlement that covers your medical bills and compensates you for your physical and emotional scars.
While pursuing legal action cannot undo the injuries and emotional traumas you experience in an animal attack, it enables you to secure the compensation needed to cover losses related to your injury. What’s more, it sends an important message to dog owners by letting them know that their negligence will not go unpunished.
It’s important to seek medical treatment immediately following an attack. Furthermore, you should promptly contact Jones Law Group to evaluate the legal ramifications of your case. Our law firm will be able to tell you whether you have a legal claim and what damages you may be able to recover. Injuries and illnesses that may result from a dog bite or animal attack include the following:
Children are often victims of dog bites because they are curious, vulnerable, and less able to protect themselves. The dog bite accident and animal attack injury lawyers at Jones Law Group will seek to recover maximum compensation for any injuries your child sustains in a dog bite accident.
We will ask you to provide detailed information about the circumstances surrounding your dog bite accident. You will be required to provide the name and phone number of the animal’s owner. If you don’t have this information, a witness or neighbor may be able to provide it for you. If there were witnesses who saw the dog bite or animal attack occur, you should get their names and contact information.
In Ohio, pet owners are almost always liable for injuries caused by their pets. If you were injured in a dog bite accident or animal attack because of a pet owner’s negligence, contact Jones Law Group. We will aggressively pursue claims against all negligent and responsible parties. Call (614) 545-9998 or contact us online to learn more about how we can represent you in your dog bite case.
